Here are some pics of my JD 318 riding mower. I bought it in the fall of 2011. It has 1,177 hours on it. I had to replace the spindle bearings on the mower deck, and I thought since I have it taken apart, I might as well paint the whole thing. The guy I bought it from did some work on the deck, and then painted the deck with a brush, and he told me that the first owners wife, repainted the green, and I could see that she used a brush as well. So a little bit of work and I got the deck and the wheels painted, and I just got most of the green parts primed. So here are some pics.
